of connection of wisdom that was propounded by the obama operation was from the very beginning from the time obama got into the race to the very end the question of race, his race, was something they didn't think about, it wasn't factored into his decision to run. they didn't talk about it during the campaign. that was one of the things they said over and over again after his election. and throughout the book book, "game change," we talk about how much they were upset with race as a political factor. we talk about how in the full campaign against campaign again mccain, and after at after to add. they thought were the kind of as the mccain campaign will going to run against him that would be racially, had a response to that. been as kind of topic a in some ways. to more quickly -- >> before you do, let me show you that part of the book where you talk about that. you say whether cash campaign was coming up with negative ads on the fly, the well-heeled obama were running a stealthy high-tech lab to discover which attacks are most days and to develop responses. >> i will stay with that. i think

are, where we are going, and to raise the question whether or not barack obama is this transformative leadership that we need or is it more reactionary and transactional. robert read the first chapter but his grandmother. i'm going to read from the last chapter which is about a young man named lee alexander, south africa, young south african, 28, and he married a young african-american woman from chicago. and he -- this chapter begins basically when barack obama is about to accept denver and there is a crowd of people, about ten people mostly black but not all, some blacks and whites, some arab and we are watching television as barack obama takes the stage and this young man, wheat, is watching and everyone else is sort of celebrate -- the ret in celebration, and lee is looking with his head between -- he's on his knees looking pensive almost like she's worried and i describe this leader in the conversation about this moment and why he was looking so peacefully -- pensively and i will store reading from here. materially very little has changed for his black countrymen since beijing qu
. there's so much more to be concerned about. the irony of this book and barack obama is that at the time we appoint this black president we are black people, more isolated from the mainstream from our neighbors than ever at any point in the history of america when you think about jim-crow is gone which in some ways to deliver on how far we could go and now we have incredible distance between wealthy african-americans and everybody else which is true of the entire country and that is unsustainable. that is how the communities and people collapse so i'm just kind of agnostic on the census issue. >> after we take your question why don't we in power women and see if any have a question. [laughter] [inaudible] >> ibm willy parker and i grew up in alabama so the deep south [inaudible] to respond to two things. you sit in the book there's a wide variety of opinions for people in african comerica and community. would you consider that a demonstration of the fact that the notion of the leadership in one charismatic to lead people from the promised land the failure of president obama luft any sign
in the book we talk about early in chicago shorty after barack obama was elected and they went on dustin on strike because they won on getting their wages and basically they were -- the plant closed, windows and doors, and there were not going to give their wages. this was mostly latinos but latinos and blacks had been to get branded to be a good day strike. it was on television and obama to his credit played a big role urging them on because he came on television and said he supported the strikers and one of the july of reporting this book is one of the things i discovered was that one of the earliest forms of the union organizing was black women on the plantation, the sleeps plantation, they would organize a sit-down strike or just stop work to get a sunday off or be able to visit their relatives on a plantation. and to this day of course if you talk to the sort of a union avoidance lawyers they will tell you the person they fear the most, black women because they are the most likely to join a union so this is true with every demographic but especially us. so the only thing we have to
of the obama presidency on making realized gains in the community, and i believe that one of the reasons why some of the gains may not have been realized is because of the lack of sophistication of african-americans as a collective organized political unit, so for example, i believe barack obama is the first president that likes the base. he doesn't have the base because mainly to of the groups were responsible for the election were african americans and young people and both of these groups have not traditionally been in the power structure of america therefore we are not used to holding elected leaders accountable or are not as good as you would say conservative evangelical movement. i think this impacts obama's ability to impact of these groups in the sense that because he doesn't have his base it's hard for him to have the constructs that informs his decision making because obviously his construct doesn't aligned with african-americans political community as you can tell by the congressional black caucus lack of ability to sway his agenda so i just want to get your reaction to that while
it raises the question of what is -- people talk about how smart barack obama is and i never met him. i have no idea, but the first thing he did on the health care debate was to take single payer health care of the table. what good does that do? the employee free choice act for instance which we talk about in the chapter of the labor unions. this is something that really is as was originally offered was probably the most progressive piece of legislation in 50 years, and what it could have done was to strengthen labor unions and strengthen the democratic base. poll after poll shows most people to join labor unions. why would you not pass that piece of legislation, which would not just sort of strength and workers and their ability to sort of make a living and raise their family and contribute to the economy, which is actually what is wrong with the economy, but to also contribute your main base. .. you called call that a failed state. i have the opposite view.

for president obama. >> is this just the dirty reality of politics? >> news of a back room deal. >> all those back room deals, it's just wrong and we can do better. >> there was a wake-up call that president obama wasn't everything that they thought he was. >> the president has staked his entire first term on this. >> there's always two sides of obama. you have to lift up people, but at the end of the day, it is about deal-making. >> tonight on frontline, "obama's deal." >> what's at stake right now is not just our ability to solve this problem, but our ability to solve any problem. >> it's the inauguration day of the nation's first african american president. >> narrator: barack obama had promised change. >> he spoke of no less than remaking america. >> narrator: his signature issue: universal health care. >> in this effort, every voice has to be heard. >> this is a huge issue the president is taking on now. >> every idea must be considered. >> everybody loves the idea of health care reform. >> every option must be on the table. there should be no sacred cows. >> the question is, could healt

that obama promised to do was to change politics and change the highly partisan politics that we've witnessed since clinton and newt gingrich. he's been able able to do that, as you know. and the opposition party the republicans, have not supported his economic program and have not supported health care. and they have successfully roused they're fateful angle another and that's produced from the liberal side of the democratic party. so there is a lot of that hostility out there. but when it breaks over the line into an illegal activity i think the american people will step back and say, hold on. that's enough. one of the failures so far of the an obama administration has been to change the mood in america. the fact of the matter is that congress is not a representative institution. it over presents the members of congress in the house and senate, over presents the ideological extremes of each of the party. and unfortunately what you're talking about the tea party and revolt, seems to suggest that situation i was going to call a disease, has now spread and infected some of the population. i th
